19. BARB WIRE (1996)

Before Dark Horse Comics became the creative powerhouse that it is today, the company had some middling success with a few alternative titles back in the '90s. At the top of the heap was Barb Wire; in 1996, the property was turned into a movie starring Pamela Anderson. It was the Baywatch bombshell's first major film role, and, unsurprisingly, it earned her a Golden Raspberry award—that’s not a good thing.

Barb Wire, meant to be a satire, was actually a re-imagining of Casablanca set in a dystopian future. Even though the film was purposely campy, that didn’t help the humor and tone from being equally abysmal. Not even director David Hogan's liberal framing of Anderson's tremendous rack could save the film from being a complete failure.
